Event number: 19106
Presenter(s): Dr Louise Roufeil FAPS MCHP

The Newcastle Branch of the Australian Psychological Society would like to thank members for their support during the year and warmly invite you to attend the 2017 Annual General Meeting. The evening will start off with the AGM (6.30pm) including the Chair and Treasurer’s reports followed by the election of new office bearers.

Have you thought about joining the committee and having your say in the running of your local APS member branch? Now is your chance to become involved. The committee is a friendly group who would welcome some new members with fresh ideas and energy.

Come and join your colleagues for an enjoyable evening of conversation and catch up over canapes and drinks, which will be served from 7pm. (For the hungry, note that canapés will be substantial). We are excited to announce that our speaker for the evening will be Dr Louise Roufeil from APS National Office. Louise will speak on the topic of ‘A time of change: The practice of psychology in Australia’.
